Write down the radio's activation code prior to disconnecting the battery' s negative terminal.
Remove the air-intake duct and the air filter housing. (assuming this your car is 4-cylinder)
Remove the bracket that runs between the inlet manifold and the starter-motor.
The starter-motor is by the left-side of the transmission over the axle-shaft.
Disconnect its solenoid wire and the positive wire attached to the starter-motor.
Remove the three 14mm bolts holding it up.
Once taken out, exchange it for a rebuilt one at your local autoparts store.

SOURCE: how to replace starter
Keep in mind that the engine sits in there sideways, so the "back" of the engine, or flywheel is actually on the driver's side (the front is on the passenger side). The starter for any vehicle is at the flywheel. Raise the vehicle and crawl underneath from the front on the driver's side. Look for the oil filter. Slightly above and to your left (toward the driver's side wheel well) is the starter. It looks to me like you'll need to drain the motor oil and remove the oil filter to have room to remove the starter.

maybe the starter or wire connections are bad? see if theres a way to turn the engine manually so you know it's not locked up...make sure the spark plug wire is off!
